Richard Cordray’s Scandal-Plagued Campaign Embraces Fellow DC Bureaucrat Betty Sutton

Former Congresswoman Betty Sutton will join Richard Cordray as his running mate.

Washington D.C.’s most power-hungry bureaucrat Richard Cordray announced today that failed former Congresswoman Betty Sutton will join his ticket as the candidate for Lieutenant Governor. Just like Cordray, Sutton was rejected by Ohio voters in her last election and was later given a cushy job in Washington D.C. running a federal agency, and continued pushing a radical left-wing agenda at the national level. With her established record of backing unpopular job-killing policies that hurt working Americans, Sutton is well-suited to run on Cordray’s ticket, but gives voters even further reason to reject their candidacies once more.

Sutton is now stuck defending Cordray’s scandalous record of mismanagement at the CFPB. For months, Cordray has been mired in potential scandals with reports of funneling taxpayer money to Democrat ad-makers, widespread gender and racial discrimination, massive bureaucratic overreach, and spending hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars on renovations to the CFPB’s headquarters. Now that she’s joined his ticket, Sutton should immediately comment on the scandals plaguing Cordray and admit to voters why she believes they do not disqualify him from running.

By choosing Sutton as his running mate, Cordray is confirming that he thinks Washington D.C. Bureaucrats with established records of mismanagement are the type of leaders that Ohio voters want. But after spending most of the last decade pushing their job-killing agenda in Washington D.C., Cordray and Sutton have proven to Ohioans that they can’t be trusted to lead.
